By Nurat Uthman

An Ondo State Chief Magistrate’s Court, sitting in Akure, the state capital, has ordered the remand of two men, Ayomide Sambo and Johnson Adeleke, for allegedly killing a naval officer, Samson Akingbagbohun.

The defendants were arrested by men of the state police command for allegedly killing the officer at Ido Ani in the Ose Local Government Area of the state after an argument.

They were thereafter arraigned before the court on two counts of conspiracy and murder.

According to the prosecution, the offences contravened sections 319, 316 and 342 of the Criminal Code, Cap. 37, Vol. 1, Laws of Ondo State, Nigeria 2006.

The police prosecutor, Inspector Nelson Akintimehin, informed the court that the defendants and others at large committed the offences on June 26, 2023, around 7:40pm.

He urged the court to remand the defendants in the Olokuta Custodial Centre to enable him to forward their case file to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

But the defence counsel, Tolulope Adebiyi, prayed the court to grant her clients’ bail.

In his ruling, the Chief Magistrate, Musa Al-Yunus, remanded the two defendants.

The court, however, admitted a third defendant, Francis Shagari, to bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.

The case was adjourned till August 1, 2023, for mention.
